Psalm 91

Psalm 91

v1 – He – this is a born again believer – RELATIONSHIP
-the believer is to be dwelling – means to stay…remain…permanently attach yourself to someone
-the believer must have staying power
-the believer dwells in the secret place
a. the secret place is a place of our daily fellowship and personal devotions with Jesus
b. this is the #1 priority in our lives – Matthew 6:25-34
c. this is fellowship time with Jesus
-relationship vs fellowship
***DWELLING IN THE SECRET PLACE IS A CHOICE FOR EVERY BELIEVER***
-it must also be continual and daily
-church is not the secret place
It is the secret place of the Most High God
-this name of God speaks of several things
1. El Elyon is the Most High God – #1
-He is above all other gods
-Phil 2:9-11
2. El Elyon speaks of everything belonging to God
-He owns everything and we must let go
-El Elyon puts His finger on everything in our lives…….
3. El Elyon is a Powerful God – The Almighty
-He is the most powerful God because He is above all gods – which are fake and dead
*Will abide under the shadow of the Almighty
-v1b – when we are in fellowship with God we are in the shade – shadow
-its refreshing…peaceful…calm...cool
-when we are in the heat, we sweat and stink
-Do we want to smell good or bad???????
v2 – Then I will say
-when we are dwelling in the secret place the Lord deals with our mouth…
1. we begin to declare the Word of God
-who we are
-who God is
My refuge – a city made up of many buildings and fortresses to protect us from large attacks of the enemy
My Fortress – one building to protect us from small attacks of the enemy
***Our God is a fortress and a refuge which ever move.  Our God never moves……
-we can trust Him…
2. We will speak life instead of death
-always tell the truth, but include the Word of God
